what if I told you … about intimacy?


less is more 02.12.13

What if I told you that this month’s Amped is a special Valentine’s Day edition? What if I told you that the topic of this month’s Amped is post-amputation intimacy? What if I told you that Peggy and I debated how to discuss this and title the podcast so that we wouldn’t get inundated with links to porn sites?

What if I told you that my partner in crime, Peggy, has the demonstrated ability to knock multiple people unconscious simultaneously? What if I told you that she talks about it in the podcast?

What if I told you that I have the demonstrated ability to make other people throw up? What if I told you that I talk about that in the podcast?

What if I told you that we now have music (briefly) at the intro of the podcast?

What if I told you that my wife substituted her leg for mine at a seminal moment in my post-amputation rehabilitation? What if I told you that this was not a permanent solution for my limb loss?

What if I told you that Peggy and I finished this podcast and then asked each other, “Geez, do we really want others to hear us talking about this?” What if I told you that we decided to let the whole dang thing roll anyway?

What if I told you that Peggy had to teach her husband how to let her live independently by permitting her to perform chores around the house? What if I told you that my wife is still trying to teach me how to live independently by encouraging me to do the same?

What if I told you that some people lose a leg and then lose their spouse or significant other? What if I told you that this isn’t uncommon?

What if I told you that Peggy (apparently) has “moves?”

What if I told you that the end of this podcast isn’t really the end? What if I told you to listen an extra 10 seconds after we “officially” close the show to hear our respective reactions to discussing the topic of intimacy?

What if you listened to Amped to get a crash course on the topic of post-amputation intimacy? Click on the link in the “Amped” in the first sentence of this post. Do it. I promise, it’s entertaining.
